Embrace The Romance of Sailing the High Seas with Star Clippers
There’s something inherently romantic about a sailing vacation: the caress of warm, salt air on your skin; days spent strolling hand in hand through picturesque port towns and along pristine beaches; and vibrant sunsets viewed from a cozy, private spot on deck, champagne flutes in hand. Most compelling for couples seeking an amorous adventure is the opportunity to experience the rush of soaring across the ocean powered by the wind alone, full sails overhead and blue water below. For travelers looking to celebrate a honeymoon, anniversary, vow renewal, proposal or just a retreat for two, the romance of gliding into an exotic port aboard one of the world’s largest clipper ships under full sail is simply undeniable.
With sailing itineraries throughout the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Bali and Thailand, Star Clippers’ ships offer a dreamy setting for couples looking to explore some of the world’s most beautiful destinations while feeling as though they’re sailing aboard a private yacht. Unlike the mega ships that sail these waters, Star Clippers’ ships hold between 170 and 227 passengers, making it possible to drop anchor remote harbors and visit off-the-beaten-path ports in romantic locales like the Italian Riviera and the Caribbean’s Treasure Islands.
Of course, opportunities to get close on board abound. A favorite spot for cozying up can be found in the bowsprit netting—a hammock-like area stretching 30 feet forward of the bow where guests can lay suspended over the ocean. In addition to affording one of the most unique and exciting settings on any cruise ship afloat, it’s also an ideal spot to spend some quiet time and maybe even pop the big question. More adventurous guests might opt to climb the mast to the Crow’s Nest for unbeatable views of the ocean, landscape and ship below. For those who like to make their romantic getaways more “official,” the crew of the Star Clipper can do a vow renewal ceremony onboard.
To further enhance the romance quotient, guests booking any Star Clippers sailing by February 29, 2020 will receive a complimentary couples’ massage, a bottle of champagne and sweet treats in their cabin. This offer is combinable with other Star Clippers offers.
For more than 25 years, Star Clippers has been introducing travelers to the thrill of modern tall ship sailing to remote ports in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore. The company operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels: Star Clipper and Star Flyer are traditional clipper ships with modern amenities carrying 170 guests, while the 227-guest Royal Clipper holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship in service today. All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, convivial tropical bars on deck and piano lounges.
